Dal Baati

Today I am posting yet another dish I prepared for the Rajasthani Thali, the famous Dal Baati. No Rajasthani Thali is complete without this dish. Baati is a baked flaky bread served with Dal. Here the bati is rolled and baked in the oven and fried. But there is also another method where it is boiled and fried and served.  Will post the recipe using that method later sometime. 

Dal Baati


For the Baati

What are the ingredients needed?

Wheat flour, 1 1/2 cup
Salt, to taste
Ghee, 3 tablespoons 

How it is made?
  1. Mix wheat flour, salt, add water and ghee,knead to form a stiff dough.
  2. Divide this equally and roll them to small balls. 
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 375 F and bake these balls for about 15 minutes or till the top is lightly browned.
  4. Take it out and serve it with Dal.
Notes:
  • Baati can be fried in ghee after being baked to give it a even color. But I didn't do it. I just brushed it with ghee.
  • Baati is dipped in ghee, so that they absorb most of the ghee. But if you are not comfortable with it, then you can drizzle ghee on it when it it is still warm and serve.
